Term 2

Term 2


What toys did our parents play with?


Way, way back


What is your favourite toy? Do you know which toys yours parents played with when they were little? Was it the same as your favourite toy? This term we will be exploring the world of toys and making our toy at the end of the term! You might like to ask your parents and Grand-parents what they liked to play with when they were little! 



This term we will be learning about the months in the year and which seasons occur during these months. Our main focus will be upon Autumnal changes and we will explore these through lots of hands on outdoor activities. We will also explore which weathers usually occur through the seasons and how best to prepare for different weather conditions. It would be useful if children could practise learning the months of the year at home to help remember them, ideally in order!



We will be focussing on learning all Phase 3 sounds with the view of starting phase 4 before Christmas. At this stage, children should be comfortable with each phoneme. From here on, the teaching of phonics will be about consolidating and improving their knowledge, while introducing trickier words with increased vocabulary. By phase 4 phonics , children should be able to blend confidently to work out the sound of new words. They should be able to read words right away without sounding them out. And they should be able to write each letter



We will be signing 'Ding Dong' in Kanzi class and the 'Christmas Conga' in Jazz class! As we are unable to perform as part of a Christmas production this year we will be learning the songs off by heart and performing actions alongside the lyrics! Do have a practise at home alongside the actions and instruments! You will be able to see our final performances once they have been filmed!
